at Digging Dog
Set against a blue summer sky, this lofty Mediterranean treasure delivers an impressive dose of grandeur. The fantastic feathery dark green architecture consists of huge unscented thread-like leaves plus a thick towering, mauve-tinged glaucous flower stalk, crowned by gigantic branched yellow umbels. Appreciated since ancient Greek times when its dried stems may have been utilized as the original Olympic torch, Giant Fennelís robust semitransparent bearing is still relevant today as a back of the border specimen for sheltered well draining sites.
Size: 7' 0"–8' 0" high x 2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 7.
